So, this is the first day of my new life at home. I am no longer working full time in an office. I’ve switched to part-time working from home. I am now part writer, part stay-at-home dad, and part working stiff. Hope my son goes easy on me! The toughest part will be arranging my day so I can still get as much writing done as possible. Have a long road ahead of me with all these projects! Wish me luck.
Hey all, trying to get back to writing more regularly. Shane is a busy kid but lately he’s let me get some writing time in! I’m working on editing a story I wrote for a writing competition about a year ago that I will be submitting to this year’s Outworld Press Anthology. The story is called Heads or Tails and it involves an abusive father and his sheltered children.
Here is the link to the Outworld Press Facebook page:
I’m also working on my edits for my novel and so far I’m happy. I still have a long way to go but it’s shaping up nicely. My comic project is still in the works, as well. I just received some notes from Jason for ideas and I’ll be starting on a script soon. Exciting things happening, stay tuned!
My wife has given me permission to walk again this year with the Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day Club here in New Orleans! She is going to stay at home with Shane while I stumble through the streets of New Orleans. She’s a trooper! Love you baby!
My family and I have started to get into what vaguely resembles a routine so I’ve been looking at my manuscript again after a short break. Shane is my new inspiration and I hope to be more creative than ever.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day y’all!
Finishing that first draft was a total relief and accomplishment but now that the edits have begun I cringe at what I wrote a year ago. A lot is getting lopped off during the second draft for good reason. There is a whole new level of satisfaction in trimming out the crap that I puked onto the page just to get to the next chapter. I’m optimistic.
